World of Darkness: Ready When it's Done

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,622MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

During last week's CCP FanFest, the team was ready to unwrap a tiny corner of the World of Darkness, a game that many players are quite interested in. We've got the full report from FanFest so keep reading!

"Ready when it's done" announces World of Darkness executive producer Chris McDonough - is there honestly a more disappointing statement in the gaming industry? It leaves eager fans in a nether region of excitement and anticipation; cautiously optimistic of a short wait, while also trying to combat that nagging sense that there's another Duke Nukem Forever on the way.

    To be honest we haven't seen or told anything about wod so the phrase when is done is not so painful.

    Since this is being called WoD and not VtM im kinda hopeing to see more than just Vampires. it would be nice to be able to play a hunter, however to play them correctly you would need to be clever. simply put, a Hunter cannot go toe to toe with a vampire.

    Because i can.

    They stated they are going to start out with Vampires first.  Then after they have perfected that group system, they would start to add in other groups.

    "Ready when done" is starting to seem more like "WE HAVE NO FREAKING IDEA".

    Fair enough. I will need fresh blood to keep immortal for the final live release. I am still hot for the game. Keep on coding into the night CCP.

    I wonder how far they will expand vampires too. They had a couple of interesting concepts that only found niche sucess in the Tabletop/LARP arena like Kindred of the East and the African vampires. I wonder i they get worked in somehow when the game has been live for a good while.

    They really haven't built anything since 2011 or the merger: its a barren town with dark, foreboding motives. Nothing else. If we see it 2018 we'll be lucky...

    They should change this title to Vampires the Masquerade until we see some solid evidence that they will in fact give us the option to play ANY of the other factions. Hell they aren't even including the hunters, hello! hunters are universal.

    I blame the EvE players, if they had all bought monocles like they were supposed to instead of rioting and meta gaming CCP, then WoD would have been ready much sooner.

    That's how CCP do things, a layer at a time like they did with EvE and it's expansions. First is vampires, probably because they are the more iconic, then they will tidy it up and move on to the next layer.

    I've been looking for a game with sandbox/themepark elements without knights in shining armour and dwarves. Know nothing about this particular IP but it's NOT Twilight or Buffy so I'm game. Perma death? Never played a game before with perma death unless about every game before save feature/hardrive was implemented counts. I'm not afraid of perma death. Fashion, intrigue, dark and gritty with plenty of rp elements and politics. One to watch for sure!

    I really hope so. I'm a long time fan and player of all the Whitewolf's games, even Trinity. It's a pretty big deal to me that they use the WoD name and they pick the lowest hanging fruit to start with. While they say they will add the other metas later, we have no idea if it will be as NPC mobs or as playable characters. I'll be patient with a dash of disappointment.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    Not being on the dev team you cant really know what they have or have not done. The vast majority of development occurs on paper before it ever gets to a computer screen. At least thats how the good games are created. Assuming they had to pull back resources from WoD in order to focus back in on Eve and get that game back to where it needs to be - A lot of invisible paper design can still occur as only a small group of people tend to be responsible for that aspect no matter how big the final team ends up being.

    In the long run better to have a good game that takes time to create than another quick flashy game that has no substance and lasts only a couple of months.

    I wonder if everyone in the game will be forced to walk to uphold realistic atmosphere and shy away from the running/bunny hopping that is MMO worlds.

  • orbitxoorbitxo fort lauderdale, FLPosts: 1,408Member Uncommon

    this already looks dated. feel bad for CCP, couse i think theyre a great company- they should of just invested in WH dark mellinium.

  • McGamerMcGamer Fairfield Bay, ARPosts: 1,012Member

    I'm looking forward to seeing more about this IP.

    They should just make this a landable planet in Eve so Eve players can have an alt life as vampires.

    Given how CCP currently handles Eve I'd doubt it. They seem to enjoy a hands off approch rather then roleplaying standards, it does make for a unique atmosphere for their games. However I'm 99% sure if you could bunny hop, or tea-bag an enemy ship, players would do that all the time in eve with their community.
